ANA Enterprise is committed to supporting the more than 5 million registered nurses in the U.S. in reaching their true potential. As part of that commitment, we ensure our members are kept up to date with the latest developments in health and health care; from clinical and practical nursing topics, to helping with career progression, as well as providing the latest news from the ANA Enterprise.
We do this through several journals, made available to all our members and the wider nursing community as a whole:
American Nurse Journal
The official journal of the American Nurses Association (ANA), and rated as a highly valuable benefit of membership by ANA members, American Nurse Journal is read by 175,000 nursing professionals.
Every edition features peer-reviewed features and articles written to keep nurses abreast of the latest developments in health care, and supply them with the latest information that will enhance patient outcomes. Equally as important, the journal also provides advice and help on dealing with the day-to-day issues nurses can be faced with, such as dealing with workplace fatigue or finding a new position.
OJIN: The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing
One of the cornerstones of our profession is collaboration. Nurses have always sought to share their experiences and ideas with their peers in order to find new ways of delivering quality health care. OJIN: The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing is the space where they can do just that.
A peer-reviewed, digital-only publication, every month OJIN provides a collection of invited articles written by national and international experts which are then openly discussed by the community. This interactive format encourages a dynamic dialogue, resulting in a comprehensive discussion of the topic. From this, the OJIN community helps build up a shared knowledge base, and even suggests policy implications that can enhance the health of the public.
The American Nurse
For almost 50 years, The American Nurse newspaper was the official member news periodical of the American Nurses Association (ANA). Established in 1968, The American Nurse chronicled history as ANA’s work mirrored changes in the profession and society at large. Through its pages, The American Nurse helped to inspire, inform, and lead the profession. The November/December 2016 issue was the last issue of The American Nurse. Beginning in January 2017, news of ANA is included in an expanded section, ANA on the Frontline, in its official journal, American Nurse.
